This week Drew McIntyre returned to TV on Raw and it was confirmed he will be the final member of Team Flair at Crown Jewel.
McIntyre also defeated Ricochet on Raw, and it was his first match since the August 26 episode where he lost to Ricochet.
Dave Meltzer noted on Wrestling Observer Radio that the match against Ricochet on Raw was all about getting McIntyre over.
There’s no word yet on if there are plans for a Ricochet vs. McIntyre feud to continue after the Team Hogan vs. Team Flair match at Crown Jewel, but it was noted that WWE does have strong plans for both Ricochet and McIntyre.
WWE officials are reportedly trying to get Drew McIntyre over for a top spot on Raw right now.
The focus is said to be getting McIntyre’s push going right now. Ricochet’s push is more of a long term project and his run at the top is being saved for down the line.
